other important information re delivery
Other important information re delivery
  • Workplace learning – a requirement of 240 hours. 100 - 120 hrs in both Semester 1 and Semester 2.
  • Each student will be required to complete work placement – if already working within a disability service this may be completed on the job and will be discussed further next week (don’t panic)!!
  • If you are unable to meet all of the requirements in your current position it may be that you do a small amount of hours in a disability organisation e.g. 30 hours ina designated organisation where you can be exposed to the knowledge/skills required.
accessing resources for learning
Accessing resources for learning
  • Once each student is aware of what UOC they are required to complete the student can purchase resources to support their learning
  • Resources are available from a number of sources at different costs
  • SmallPrint provide resources for each UOC at a cost of $16 each. You can chose to purchase these personally or pay TAFE $16 per Unit and TAFE can provide access to the resource through Catapult an on-line facility where you can work through the unit.
  • Other companies such as Aspire also provide these resources
  • Students will also be required too undertake their own research for learning purposes
recognition of prior learning rpl
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
  • TAFE NSW recognises that students may have gained skills and knowledge in their previous studies, and life and work experiences. To gain recognition you must be able to prove your competence using evidence that is relevant, authentic, sufficient and current.

Three types of RPL

  • Auto Credit for relevant previous TAFE Study
  • Mutual Recognition for matching units of competence from another RTO or training provider
  • Non-standard Recognition
application for non standard rpl
Application for non-standard RPL

Often students have had experience in the areas they are seeking their qualification e.g.

  • Worked in the Community Services sector for several years and possess skills and knowledge which is transferable
  • Worked in a case management role for some time
  • Experience in other agency types or job roles which are relevant to the UOC you are studying with transferable skills and knowledge
  • Previous training which has provided the knowledge/skills

You are required (in consultation with your teacher) to:

  • Complete a portfolio of evidence
  • Complete a competency conversation relating to the UOC’s you are applying for
  • Complete and sign an RPL form

  • Liz is a registered nurse and has worked as a full-time case manager with a non-government organisation (NGO) for the last five years. Prior to this she was employed as a residential care worker for two years with a small community based direct care service provider, supporting five high needs clients. She works in a culturally diverse area and has several complex clients including several with a dual diagnosis including issues relating to mental health and alcohol and other drugs.
  • A large amount of Liz’s responsibilities include conducting assessments of client need and developing and implementing individual plans for clients. Liz is a representative on the organisation’s OH&S committee and attends the local youth and disability interagency meetings. With an extended network of contacts Liz is able to refer clients, as necessary, to relevant services.

Based on the information in the case study, Liz decides to apply for RPL for the following Units of competency:

  • Use targeted communication skills to build relationships CHCCOM504C
  • Facilitate links with other services CHCNET404A
  • Contribute to OHS processes CHCOHS300A

Liz was then granted recognition in the units listed above by providing the following documentation (de-identified as necessary):

  • A resume
  • A detailed job description
  • A supervisor’s report
  • An OH&S committee report with Liz mentioned as a current committee member
  • Interagency minutes with Liz’s attendance noted
  • An assessment of client need
  • An individual plan
  • A referral to mental health team

a question to get us started
A question to get us started
  • When I think of the disability sector in Australia I think of.........
the community services sector in australia
The community services sector in Australia
  • The community services sector provides local communities and regional and remote communities with services that meet a broad range of needs and provide a large range of vitally important services to Australians
  • Services delivered aim to promote physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing
  • What types of services are delivered in Australia?
  • Place your responses in the chat box

Each of you will have had some different thoughts on the question. The disability sector provides a range of different support services to people with disabilities which includes:

  • Accommodation services (group homes, supported accommodation)
  • Employment programs
  • Income support
  • Advocacy services
  • Specialist education and training
  • Respite, community support, community access, day programs, leisure programs

Groups in the community that are marginalised or disadvantaged, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the aged, culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD); families and people with a disability; mental health and AOD issues; are supported by government and non-government providers of community services

  • Non-government services are delivered by commercial and not-for-profit organisations (NGOs).
  • What is your understanding of an NGO in comparison to a government organisation?
an ngo is
An NGO is ...............
  • A non-government organization (NGO) is a legally constituted organisation created by people that operate independently from any government and a term usually used by governments to refer to entities that have no government status.
  • In the cases in which NGOs are funded totally or partially by governments, the NGO maintains its non-governmental status by excluding government representatives from membership in the organization.
  • They are run by a board or a community based management committee
funding for the community sector
Funding for the community sector
  • Funding can come from a range of bodies
  • Services may be funded by one source only or may obtain funding from a combination of sources

Funding sources may include:

  • Federal, state or local government
  • Fundraising and charity
  • Voluntary organisations
  • Commercial organisations
  • Not for profit organisations
disability service standards legislation
Disability Service Standards & Legislation
  • We will practice using the poll pods and I will ask you some questions about your knowledge of the Disability Services Standards
  • Think about what you know about the standards and disability legislation
important information for you to know
Important information for you to know
  • The Disability Services Act (Cwth) was passed in 1986 and state disability legislation – Disability Services Act (NSW) 1993
  • The Act provides a legislative and funding framework for a range of disability services, including employment services
  • The Act also provides a set of guiding standards for the delivery of quality services – Disability Service Standards
  • They are underpinned by social justice principles – equity, respect, participation, access etc

What do you already know about the standards?

  • How many standards are there?
  • This week – if you are not already familiar with the standards – research them on the net, and/or go to a Disability service and talk to someone about them
